A few months before the pandemic hit, I went on an epic Euro trip with one of my closest friends. Our first stop was Paris. As much as we wanted to stay for a few days, we were only able to stay two nights here so with the short time we had, we made the most of it. And what better way to do that but walk for miles, eat, walk some more and eat some more! This was our first stop and boy was it an amazing way to kick of our Euro trip. Here are my personal faves that will forever be tattooed to my mind, heart and tastebuds.

"You spent how much on an omelet?!

For years another good friend of mine kept raving about the Blue Lobster Omelet so naturally, I had to add it to my list. Told my travel buddy that I don't care how much it'll cost, but I'm having that omelet. It was worth every Euro. Although I got a really good discount, I still would've paid full price for this bébé. Si délicieux!

What the crêpe?!

You bet I had one! And of course, I had to be a little extra and have one from a cart across from the Notre Dame, steps from Shakespeare and Company while overlooking the Seine. I mean, look at that view!!

Oui, Pâtisserie.

Lastly, you can't go to France without having any of their pastries. A friend of mine surprised us with some sweet amenities and possibly the best macarons I've ever had in my life. My travel buddy also had to grab some macarons from Ladurée for her sister on our second (and last) day so she grabbed me a pain au chocolat which was perfection. Pastries at Paul's were also very good.

Ahh Paris. What a beautiful city. I can't wait to go back but until then, I will continue to reminisce with the endless amounts of pictures and videos I took including this video, which is my personal favourite so it only felt right to share with you all. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  • I am missing so much. We haven't been there for three years! Speaking of omelette, there's a cafe behind old Opera House, opposite Paris Tourist Office. They only serve omelettes and crepes. Very much is worth the visit. This is one of many little hidden gems that make Paris what it is! Yes, Siemens cruise is great, particularly on Maxim's Boat restaurant! Another must is Café Procope, favourite place of Voltaire and his contemporaries. And of course, I must mention our favourite restaurant, the magnificent La Tour d'Argent.
